Let Students Refinance Their Loans

Here’s “student loan debt” part 2. Russ Feingold has launched a campaign to ease the burden of student loans.

As former Wisconsin Sen. Russ Feingold aims to unseat GOP Sen. Ron Johnson, he is promoting a social media campaign advocating for a proposal that would allow students to refinance their loans.

Johnson has called student loan refinancing a "big government giveaway proposal" and also referred to student loans as "free money."

The Republican senator voted against [Sen. Elizabeth] Warren's proposal to allow student loan borrowers to refinance their loans at significantly lower interest rates.

To prevent the bill from adding to the federal deficit, it would enact the "Buffett Rule," imposing a minimum tax rate on millionaires.

Yeesh. Ron Johnson apparently doesn't mind saddling students with more debt—so long as the fortunes of millionaires aren't imposed upon.
